It has been a while since we last saw Evander Holyfield in the ring, but it seems he's making a return soon. We've seen speculation that Holyfield would face off against Mike Tyson in a rematch, but that fight is slipping into uncertainty the more time goes on.

According to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix, Evander Holyfield is now set to fight Kevin McBride in an eight-round exhibition on June 5. Holyfield hasn't been in the boxing ring since 2011, whereas McBride is known for his knockout victory over Mike Tyson in 2005, which sent Tyson into retirement.

McBride will have to do for Holyfield for now, but a possible rematch with Tyson could still come to fruition in the future:

Holyfield, 58, had hoped to secure a match against Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion who defeated Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match last November. Holyfield (44-10-2) and Tyson famously fought twice in the 1990s, with the 1997 rematch ending in a disqualification win for Holyfield after Tyson bit off a piece of Holyfield’s ear.

McBride isn't a joke of an opponent, but he's no Mike Tyson. With Roy Jones Jr. taking on Tyson, McBride may be Holyfield's “warmup” fight before the two go head-to-head. The fight between “Holyfield-McBride will appear on the undercard of Teofimo Lopez’s lightweight title defense against George Kambosos. The event will be streamed on Triller,” per Sports Illustrated.

Both Holyfield and McBride have been retired since 2011, but now they're getting back in the ring for at least one more time before it's too late. Most people will likely be rooting for Holyfield, but McBride will have a puncher's chance to secure a victory.
